I worked as boom operator/utility sound technician for this cool project for Samsung 360 where we interviewed people about their impressions of the new Samsung Gear virtual reality headset. Much of the spot was shot with GoPros that had a 360 degree angle view. I never saw anything like this set up before. I think it was 5 different GoPros attached to a gadget that had them all placed in spots where they faced a different direction so that the angles could be patched together in post to create virtual reality.
Everyone was really cool on this shoot and Rampage Jackson was awesome. He’s such a nice guy.
Thanks to Will Ogilvie, my sound mixer, for bringing me on the project!
The Women of the Local 695 were interviewed for this article in the local’s Quarterly Magazine and I was a sound mixer in the union back when they interviewed us in November of 2014. I have recently switched to being a Utility Sound Technician for the union instead, but I am still a sound mixer when it comes to non-union work.
